A group of travellers that set up camp on a Sutton park have been successfully removed.

Travellers parked several caravans on Rosehill Park West on Sunday but Sutton Council managed to remove them from the site on Wednesday afternoon.

A spokesman for the council said: "The travellers left Rosehill Park after we served notice on them.

Sutton Guardian:

The travellers set up camp on Sunday but left yesterday

"This was done as quickly as possible so it is a good result due to the efficient measures we have in place."

Sutton Council has a responsibility to ensure the welfare of any children among a group of travellers before a camp can be dispersed. The council must also make  sure any children are in education.

Once these checks have taken place groups may be served with eviction notices.
